Thank you Monsieur Klaus for providing an outlet for poems that pulse out of us like corrosive acid

Thou shalt not bow in Outlaw Poetry

Thou shalt not bow by Sofia Kioroglou
Posted on February 27


Universal Apostasy
You will know when you see
your husband in the gates,
sitting among the elders of the land

Devil and Antichrist
prowl around like a roaring lion
Ready to devour
Open your eyes

The Mystery of Iniquity
will meet you at the city gates
seeking to devour
thou shalt not bow

      1. I have been very busy with work and personal issues lately and have spent little time on poetry lately. Sorry I have been away for so long! The Antichrist story has always resonated with me. Be happy, be blessed, dear Sofia! Love from California! ❤
